This is a must stop in Boone. Absolutely the best fast food I have ever eaten. Fresh sweet potato chips, hand cut fries, delicious burgers, and I could go on.

After choosing our Christmas tree at C & J Christmas Tree Farm, we decided to go for some hamburgers. We stopped at Come Back Shack and the place was crowded. After ordering we started vying for a table. Our order came before we had a seat but only moments before. Our hamburgers were delicious. They serve large portions of fries... More

That said, I visited Come Back Shack on a friend's recommendation. First trip was local grass fed beef burger and chocolate shake. Wow. Most satisfyingly indulgent shake I have had in years and burger was perfect. Subsequent visits have been for salads with grilled chicken. You can select 4 toppings to create your own salad. House made vinegrette is fresh... More

Wanted to try something "local" without a huge price tag. Whole family thought it delicious. The fries were definitely our favorite. Will visit again when in the area!

There was a drive thru which was convenient. We ordered our burgers come back style which was pretty good - not as amazing as the reviews made it out to see, but still good.

The come back sauce is delicious. My burger was pretty good, but not absolutely amazing. It was smaller than I expected as well. My wife’s chicken sandwich was better and tastier. The chili cheese fries were meh. The food was good, but not amazing. We were just visiting from out of town, but I think I would come back to... More

Nice place to hang on the porch. Meat eaters were happy. Vegetarian burger was deep fried and inedible as far as I'm concerned.

If you love Burgers, then this is a must in the town of Boone NC. Not only do they have burgers, they have chicken tenders, fries, & delicious milkshakes. For cheap eats & one of the best burgers anywhere, you must give Comeback Shack a try. P.S. The Comeback Sauce is amazing!!
